About Us

About Us

The Sevier County Tea Party (SCTP) is a not-for-profit group of local patriotic citizens who are deeply concerned about America’s future and the protection of the liberties guaranteed by our Constitution.

Since the early 1900s, the progressive (liberal) movement has pushed this country toward larger government, higher taxes, more entitlements, less economic freedom and less security. Our individual liberties are continuously under attack.

The SCTP is part of a nationwide movement which began in earnest in early 2009, demanding that our federal government adhere to the limits which are directly applied by the Constitution of the United States. There are no political affiliations and citizens from all or no political party are welcome to participate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you tell me more about your organization?

The Sevier County Tea Party is made up of ordinary citizens, your friends, co-workers and neighbors, who feel that our country is on the wrong path and that the principles of our Founding Fathers – Liberty, Smaller Government and Personal Responsibility have all but been lost in present day American government.

We are not affiliated with any organization or political party. It is our goal to create events to unify, energize and motivate the silent majority who feel it is time to reclaim our government at every level, stop careless spending from the White House to the State House to the Courthouse, and to re-instill the principles of our founding fathers.
